Jesters were usually the wisest members of royal courts, due to the extra brains stored in their three-pronged hats. Let a modern jokester share some of his brains with you with today's GrouponLive deal: for $23, you get one ticket to see Billy Gardell at the Fox Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino on Saturday, October 15, at 8 p.m. (up to a $47 value, including ticketing fees). Seating is general admission.
Funnyman Billy Gardell, star of the CBS comedy Mike & Molly, fills the stage with a personable hilarity that tickles ribs and splits sides horrendously. Like a newborn rhinestone, Gardell's career has had numerous facets, from his guest appearances on Desperate Housewives and My Name is Earl to silver-screen appearances alongside Sylvester Stallone in Avenging Angelo and beside Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa. Gardell also starred in a riotous Comedy Central standup special entitled Billy Gardell: Halftime. As a standup chuckle burglar, Gardell will flood the Fox Theater with tears of laughter as he ruminates on subjects such as coming of age in a less than ideal home, the pitfalls of family life and the foibles of a feral adolescence. Gardell's down-to-earth comedic style helps audience members laugh away the sting of workplace frustrations and petty squabbles over the safest way to eat a paper clip.
